    Good day all,

    can anyone provide some feedback on the DH Labs Mirage USB cable and how it compared to other USB upper crust brands you've tried?

    I've been considering the DH Labs Mirage, Curious Cable USB and CAD ( Computer Digital Audio) USB cables? CAD has two USB cables I and II

    I'll be using the USB cable into a Schiit Gungnir, tube preamp and then Soundcraftsmen 2502 amp into ESS Monitor speakers.

    I'm really intrigued by all 3 of these brands, just wanted some feedback. The Mirage is $240, while the CAD cables are $680 for I and $900 for the II

    I have DH Labs IC's and speaker cables. I'm very satisfied with them. I haven't dipped my toe in the USB cable pool yet.

    I have used DH Labs cabling in my systems now for almost twenty years, good solid value. I have the Mirage USB as well, very happy with it, does what it is supposed to do. But I also have to say, I am not one to go through bundles of cables at this point just to see if I can maybe "hear" something better, different, perhaps....And this comment does not mean that I do not believe cables cannot make differences in a system. The only way you are going to know is to try them for yourself.

    I purchased the Mirage cable this past week. I had several USB cables i was interested in, but I have DH Labs IC's and speaker cable, making the decision easier. It arrived last Thursday, breaking in now. So far, it's very transparent and smooth, almost analog like. Cable break in is like letting a fine wine breath..
